xenxes's EHEIM Aquastyle 9.2g - Rescaped Dutch-ish + Rilis + CPDs
Just added a eheim 106. At full blast it's a lot of flow but there is a valve on the unit to slow it down.
Water cleared up a lot too.

Your interesting note makes me want to trade my fish for shrimp. ha
I agree on the filter. I have been thinking about a canister with Lilly pipes on my Aqua-style. Looks good.

Before the move:
After the move & some clipping:
The tank now gets a bit of sun each day, drastically changing the dynamic. Got a green bloom for a few months then settled down.
Interesting note, I haven't messed with the tank at all for the past 6 months. No water change, no feeding, and not much evaporation with the lid on. Completely enclosed for half a year...
What survived? The rilis, and otos, sunlight creates food.

I have two of these things, well 3 to be exact (I won 1 from eheim)
sad to say that the filters are complete garbage. I'm buying 2 HOB filters with verticle inserts for filter media, with that, you should be able to fill the aquarium up higher than the 1.5 inches from the top that the original instructions held.
I should get mine within 1-2 days, hopefully I can get my aquarium where I want it with the different changes . Not thrilled about lighting and filter getting in the way, but we'll see what happens.

|tlyons01||I was really disappointed to get to the end of this and it left off where it did. I have read all 23 pages of your journey, and I am also interested in knowing how ths setup is doing for you. I would also like to inquire about the plants that you have in the foreground, sort of looks like dwarf sag, but much thicker and taller. Blyxa perhaps? I have this tank, 6 gallon version. I have it lightly planted, but I want to possibly grow DHG in there, do you think that one LED light on that would grow it? The person I got this tank from seems to think it can grow pretty much anything, but I am curious. I am not opposed to putting on a paintball co2 setup on it. My Scarlet Badis need to have some grassy cover to reduce aggression, and I have some moss but wasn't looking to totally moss it out. If you have time I would love to hear your opinion on what I asked and see how your current set up looks these days. I really enjoyed reading this and am now subscribed should you choose to continue updating!|
